The Basilisk Pokémon

Morth usually live in vast deserts of their own creation and are rarely seen in other parts of the world, with the exception of a small conservation area in the Miravel region.  Morth create huge sandstorms and turn their immediate surroundings into a desert, their ideal habitat.  Morth have a curious ability in which if you look into their eyes, you become paralysed!  Scientists theorise that, in the distant past, Morth had the power to fully petrify whoever set eyes upon them.  Morth are as adept on land as they are in the air, sliding along like a giant snake.

Irth >>>LV35>>> Morth

Morth is one of my oldest creations and, as such, I do not fully recall it's origin.  However, I do remember it combines elements of a moth and a basilisk.
Morth's name comes from “morph” and “moth”.
